    FRONTIER MEET AT PAX EAST

    This week we went to PAX to meet our great community stateside.

    It was amazing to see so many turn up, hang out and discuss their favourite features and activities in both Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster, as well as share their excitement about the upcoming Jurassic World Evolution.

     

    Thanks to all who showed up, and we will see you again next year!

      


    THE GREAT 3.0 TREASURE HUNT HAS COME TO AN END

     

     

    We also concluded our Great 3.0 Treasure Hunt!

    We challenged our creative commanders to take screenshots of various elements of Elite Dangerous. We received a lot of amazing submissions and the team, lead by our very own Art Director, Chris Gregory, loved seeing each and every one of the images and evaluating the top contenders.

    Congratulations to the winners: CMDR Placyde, DaBeardedSpider, Twhtly and Baton.

    Check out the top submissions and see Chris’ comments on the finalists on our forums.

    The latest goods and the best deals from the Frontier Store









    TWO NEW SHIP KITS


    Fresh on the store this week are two doses of ship kits! One of the kits is for one of our most recent additions to the ship roster and the second is for one of the classic Elite Dangerous ships.


    The Vulture gets the Raider treatment this week, with a Raider Pack coming in for the heavy fighter. Take down your targets with a little more ferocity with this furious addition!


    The other addition to the store is for the Type-10 Defender in the form of a brand new ship kit. For those still out there going toe-to-toe with the Thargoids in this battling beast, give them that extra layer of individuality via these ship bolt-ons.


    As always, these are available on the Frontier Store for those of you who play on PC. Xbox and Playstation players can acquire these guys via the online stores on their respective platforms.

    AISLING DUVAL CRITICISES AEGIS

    Princess Aisling Duval has criticised Aegis in relation to the ongoing Thargoid conflict, suggesting that it has taken too long for the organisation to determine why the Thargoids are attacking. She has also critiqued Aegis for a lack of transparency over its strategy. But an Alliance spokesperson dismissed her statement as an attention-seeking gambit.










    GENESIS OF THE THARGOIDS


    Professor Cora Shaw, director of the Palin Institute, has published a paper speculating on the origin of the Thargoids. In it, she suggests that the Thargoids may be a nomadic species, and even entertains the possibility that they might be using hyperspace as a conduit from a separate dimensional plane.


    NEW DESIGNS FROM TECHNOLOGY BROKERS


    A range of new Guardian-inspired modules are now available from the galaxy’s technology brokers, developed by the engineer Ram Tah. Pilots can now purchase a Guardian power distributor, a Guardian FSD booster and a Guardian shard cannon. The cannon is available in both fixed and turreted versions.

    So the only thing in the newsletter that you've added to the game are the guardian modules. Except you've actually added nothing to the game because the modules have been temporarily™ removed from the game.

    As always fantastic work frontier /s

    OA posted a new video, which happens to have more news in it than the salesletter: https://youtu.be/55ZdcosqQtA
    Why is there no news in the newsletter anymore? Is it too hard? Did the person who put news in it, originally, quit? Did someone say 'Nope, no more news, put ads in the newsletter from now on.'?
